SCIRT traffic update

SCIRT traffic update, week starting Monday 13 July 2015

Central city update

Moorhouse Ave overbridge

• The U-turn bays under the Moorhouse overbridge will be closed from Monday 13 July. This affects traffic travelling eastbound that use the turning bay to access the Harvey Norman Centre. Follow the signs to reach the Harvey Norman Centre, which is open for business.

• Moorhouse Ave continues to have lane drops, including the overbridge, so expect delays at peak times, however flow is improving as work sites reduce.

Barbadoes St

Work on Barbadoes St will affect the Moorhouse Ave intersection for a few days with a lane drop. Use Fitzgerald Ave and avoid Barbadoes St or be ready for delays.


Other central city streets

• Manchester St is one-way southbound between Armagh St and Gloucester St. Northbound traffic detours. Try to avoid during peak hours.

• Colombo St is one-way northbound between Moorhouse Ave and Lichfield St for most of the week.

• St Asaph St has a lane drop between Colombo and Durham Sts.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference.
